Nike gets the hype machine started with its ‘Epic’ campaign. The image of LeBron James facing up a stretched-out Paul Pierce, nicknames underneath, makes for a nice fight bill. The fact that the two of them have some history makes it that much better. Pierce and James have had some of their best postseason performances against each other. The ultimate is still probably Game 7 of their second round series in 2008, when LeBron James went for 45 points but Paul Pierce hit the Cavs with 41, bouncing them in the finale of a drama-packed series.
